The Constitution – Raindance review

A deftly handled piece of cinema discussing gender, xenophobia, and love, The Constitution is well worth your attention. Coming from Raindance stalwarts Rajko Grlić & Ante Tomić, this Croatian film blends a delicate script and talented actors to create a rather wonderful feature.

The Constitution

Funny, endearing, and incredibly pertinent, director Rajko Grlić and screenwriter Ante Tomić have created a modern masterpiece in slice-of-life film. A homophobic Serbian man and his charming, homely wife live in the same apartment building as a homosexual Croatian academic and his invalid Nazi-sympathising father.

Film Review: ‘The Constitution’ by Rajko Grlić

In spite of being shown at an obscure film festival  — SEEFF, or South East European Film Festival — and in spite of dealing with the consequences of now-obscure conflicts that two decades ago dismembered Yugoslavia, "The Constitution," by Croatian director Rajko Grlić, touches your heart and soul — and lingers in your mind longer and deeper than any blockbuster loaded with an overabundance of special effects.

“The Constitution”— Four Neighbors

"The Constitution" is set in contemporary Zagreb in a large apartment building which has seen better times. Living there are four people who have been neighbors for several years, but have been careful to remain complete strangers to each other.

The Constitution

Ultimately, what won us of The Constitution is its ability to speak to people living and not of dead ideas. And this is not in the form of "tragedy" the story and the characters that animate it. On the contrary, he speaks of those "difficult things" with a hint of a smile, with a warmth and love that you can try to even the most negative character.
